the u.s. personnel in benghazi, now threatening to hold up the confirmation unless the administration answers more questions on that attack. >> no confirmation without information. this is complete system failure and i'm going to get to the bottom of it. >> now that might have been the craziest turn in the story but former vice president dick cheney criticized the president's choice of foreign policy leaders. he told a group of wyoming republicans: >> cheney should know from sect rate people, because dick cheney is now criticizing someone else's foreign policy team. i give you the least self aware political figure in modern history. while reports last week that he might withdraw his nomination, his brother said today: >> joining me now is another man who keeps fighting, michael tomasky, coming to us from washington d.c. thanks for being here in the war room. >> my great pleasure. hi. >> hi, by the way, you are now the official answer to who is the first get since the trivia question is going to be asked many times the first guest that i had on the war room. >> fugelsang doesn't count
